🎨Create a Custom Monitor

First, make sure to create an account and install the extension.

Monitors in monitoro are watching websites and webpages for changes around the clock, sending you alerts and running your automations. For example, a monitor can track a product page and send you an alert every time the price changes.

In this document we will look at creating custom monitors, which let you select custom data from any webpage. If you are looking for ready-made monitors, check out Create an Instant Monitor instead.

Creating your first monitor

To create a monitor, the very first step is to open the webpage you want to start monitoring, then click on the monitoro extension, on Monitor this page and then on Create a new monitor.

What's next?

Now let's select which data to monitor. You can also add more webpages to your monitor after you finish setting it up.

How often is my monitor checking webpages for changes?

All the webpages you're monitoring are opened and checked for changes in sequence, one after the other at the speed specified in your chosen plan.

A monitored webpage will then be opened again after all the other monitors have been opened as well, looping endlessly over your monitored webpages.

The specific duration until a page is opened a second time depends on several factors, such as how many webpages you're monitoring and external factors such as website loading time.

Here are some approximate ranges to give you a rule of thumb.

PlanFastest frequency

Free 5 webpages

60 min

Standard 1000 webpages

5 min

Pro 10000 webpages

Enterprise Unlimited webpages

Do I need to keep my computer running for monitoring to work?

If you are on the Free, Standard or Pro plan, then yes, your computer and your browser need to be running to open the websites to monitor.

Enterprise customers can run monitors in Monitoro Cloud, which is completely autonomous and does not require your computer to be running.
